Hi there friends, so today by some miracle I actually have Day 5 completed and in the album. I received some really sad news about the lens on my camera – it suffered some damage and is having some issues with the auto-focus. So I recorded a video, which I will try to upload tomorrow with Day 6, but for my still photos I had to get out my trusty phone! So forgive me for the quality of today’s shots – it is what it is. Here is Day 5 as it was created for the foundation pages:
On Day 5 we had the most fun shopping in downtown Kernersville and checking out the Christmas Around the World that all the shops hosted. I took way too many photos, so it was really hard to choose favorites. I decided to add a flip-up page to house two photos and my journaling.
Here is the photo flipped up to reveal the journaling and the photo beneath:
The journaling reads like this:
On the photo on top I simply added the Merry word from Ali Edwards’ kit and two sequins with enamel dots, and a file tab from October Afternoon.
The top of that side I left just as it was, with the star and banner on the number 5, and the vellum ephemera from Basic Grey’s Juniper Berry collection:
On the facing page, which is the back of Day 4, I had a blank square. I decided just to add a wood veneer word and a couple of word stamps. Yes, I totally smeared the red words, and I’m just leaving it as is. That is ok.
So that is Day 5, technical issues and all. I still love this project so very much and am so happy that I am keeping up. I hope you are enjoying this journey with me, now go, do and create!
See you soon,

Within each post I try my best to post links and attribute the products I have used in today’s layout. Sometimes, sadly, those products are no longer available but still deserve attribution. The red banner I used on the journaling card is from an old kit from Gossamer Blue. The wood “Adore” word is Heidi Swapp.
